How can I make Mexican food as good as Frida Taqueria?

I'm based in NYC and while New York has a great deal of fantastic restaurants, one crticism the city has received over the years is that its lacking in true AUTHENTIC Mexican food. Sure Rosa Mexicana and the like are good...but on a recent trip to LA we had the opportunity to try Frida Taqueria. The menu was small, but the each dish (and I tried them all) reflected a true commitment, passion, and experience with Mexican food and culture. People often comment that Mexican is Mexican...beans are beans and tacos are tacos. The small taqueria proves that this is NOT the case. Here's my can I learn to make tacos taste as good and as authentic as those at Frida's? Who should I talk to? I'm willing to take a class for a week to learn the ins and outs of how to perfect this cuisine!!
Any recommendations?
